I always been fascinated by the raw musical power that an orchestra can express, so, after creating a series of videos where I'm performing a multi-track piece with an instrument I designed, I decided to take the concept a step farther and create my own orchestra made of unusually unique instruments.
The project started by handcrafting a diverse selection of instruments, then I wrote a composition where I could fit them all in and finally performed each part. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
If you'd like to read a description about each instrument and its playing techniques please follow this link to my Behance gallery: http://bit.ly/ROZP4s

Since 2008, AIGA Colorado’s Bordo Bello has been breathing life into the Denver arts community and supporting mentorship programming. Through this skateboard art show, we have seen over 1000 artists show their work in celebration of the Colorado lifestyle – the connection of work, life & fun. This year we took it to New York at the AIGA National Center. Bordo Bello approached us to build a monstrous (pun intended) light box for the window display and we jumped at that opportunity. The result was phenomenal. This is the making of the piece we call - Rise and Skate.
